Welcome to the Rudloe and environs website.
Here you will find news, articles and photos of an area that straddles the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in north-west Wiltshire.
Contributions in the form of articles or photos are welcome. Even those with completely contrary views to mine!
Thanks to the website builder 1&1 and Rob Brown for the original idea.
Rudloescene now, in January 2014, has a sister, academic rather than anarchic, website about Box history here: http://www.boxpeopleandplaces.co.uk/
It contains thoroughly professional, well-researched articles about Box and its people.

The Cotswold Wardens are a fine bunch of locals who, amongst other things, keep our network of local paths clear for us plebs to enjoy. The title picture shows Dave Wright and Sid Gould taking a break from clearing path BOX29 which leads from (close to) the former entrance to RAF Rudloe No. 1 Site to Lower Rudloe Lane.
31st March 2018 - the clearance of path BOX29. This, as far as I know, was the latest local clearance, on 7th March 2018, by the Cotswold Wardens. The 'story' of the clearance and other background information about the Cotswold Wardens is given in the article in the file below. This article was also published in the April 2018 edition of Box Parish magazine.
